You don’t need to be a gadget geek or a tech whiz to take advantage of the best features of Samsung Smart TV. To show how easy Samsung Smart TV is to use, we’ve asked some of our friends in the blogosphere to show how to access its best functions, and how it can be perfect for your life no matter what your lifestyle. Mom-Blogger Tiffany Bird explains how to get started with the AllShare feature on this edition of the Samsung Smart Minute.
Let’s face it. We’ve all got stuff we want to our friends. With Samsung Smart TV, it doesn’t matter where you keep your media because you can share it on your new big-screen TV. Say you’ve got some videos on your Samsung Galaxy Phone or Tab that you want to share with the neighbors. You could all huddle around a screen, or you could just view that adorable puppy video on your Samsung Smart TV.
Check it out:
First, find the video on your Samsung Galaxy Tab and press the “menu” button on the bottom of the Tab.
Tap the “share via” button, and select “AllShare” A list of playback devices will pop up, and you should see any devices that are connected to the same wireless network as your Samsung Galaxy Tab, including your Samsung Smart TV.
Confirm the connection, and your video should play automatically. Likewise, you can also access any connected devices directly from your Samsung Smart TV.
Just select AllShare on the Smart Hub, and any device that is connected to the same wireless network and has DLNA support will show up on the AllShare menu. Be sure your device is turned on, then select where you want to share media from. AllShare is just one of the functions that makes a Samsung Smart TV so smart. Plus, it’s a fun way to share your favorite media.
